Laid-back luxe in a great location….
You and the family won’t be disappointed during your stay at the very charming Laksmana Sisters. Set amidst spectacular tropical gardens, abundant with frangipanis and palm trees, these villas boast stunning swimming pools complete with ‘bales’ on which to spend lazy days sipping coconuts and catching up on those books in your must-read pile. Enjoy a sunset coctail on the rooftop terrace, maintain your exercise regime at your private gym or a watch the latest movie in the air-conditioned media room. These villas score ten out of ten for location – they are in easy walking distance to the beach and many of Bali’s fabulous eateries and shops. The two Villas are opposite each other on a private gated road, so great to holiday together but also retreat when needed.
The bright and airy lounge and dining room, with its soaring roof and huge rattan sofa, opens to the garden on one side and a cool calm courtyard to the other .You can easily while away the hours catching up with friends and family on the comfortable sofas in the lounge room. If it’s peace and quiet you’re after then take an early morning breakfast or cup of afternoon tea in the courtyard.
Cool down in the sparkling, deep-blue-tiled pool and lounge in the shade of the cushioned bale and sip a freshly squeezed fruit juice while you browse a magazine. The separate shallow splash area is perfect for families travelling with little ones. The living room also bi-folds closed so you can relax indoors when required.
Of the four bedrooms, the upper-floor master is particularly private and has its own comfortably furnished private balcony – the perfect parent escape. Two bedrooms on the ground floor open directly onto the garden and pool and the third conveniently doubles as an air-conditioned study/TV room. All bedrooms are within the same enclosed pavilion which appeals to families as well.
Villa Shinta Dewi
The four bedrooms at Villa Shinta Dewi are situated around a turquoise swimming pool and a charming flower-filled garden. They are each equipped with air-conditioning and ceiling fans, as well as TVs and DVD players and stunning ensuites. The master suite with Jacuzzi tub for two is a definite highlight!
Should you need an extra sleeping area the air-conditioned study and TV lounge can double as an extra bedroom ideally suited for children. The staff love children and happily provide baby cot, car seat, high chair and DVD’s for children.
Enjoy happy days with friends and family catching up in the sun-filled sitting room or feasting on a meal prepared by your private chef in the dining room.
If you’re feeling really energetic you can have a workout in the small but well equipped gym! But without a doubt, the sunset lounge is the real standout at this villa. This rooftop lounge, sheltered by a soaring roof and furnished with couches and easy chairs is a great place to hang out. From here, you have views of the garden and the pool. Just imagine being handed a drink by your personal butler as you take in one of Bali’s famous sunsets on your private rooftop.
